About the the biggest news I can come up with on this years bird info is that significantly more hooded mergs than usual have been seen in central - western MN.

 

Id like to get a nice one.

Seeing a bunch of full plumage divers, swans and geese on the sauk river near Rockville. Spring is always excitieing for a waterfowler. Put a few wood duck houses out last week and checked on the ones already in place!

March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight.  They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.

 

There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet.  Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.

March 26 I got a text from a neighbor that he saw a half dozen woodies.  Gotta take his word for it since he knows ducks but I still wanna see em with my own eyes.

 

March 27 and they’re at my place along with some hoodeds.  And we’ve only seen a few goldeneyes so far I’m calling them early birds and won’t doubt my sanity next year when the early ones show up again.

      Anyone know when the antlerless permit come out?  We hunt 169 and only 500 are to be issued this year, getting a little curious. It's been a tough hunt the last few years.

      no, but you can party hunt with your buddy and shoot a buck if he has a tag and says ok. strange state.

      I believe you also cannot buy a bonus antlerless tag until you purchase a normal deer license.  Not that you would want to, but I don't think you even can.

      I had a tremendous pheasant season last year in the east-central zone.  When I was turkey hunting this spring, I still saw a lot of them.  That was before the reproductive cycle in June.  I think its going to be gangbusters this season once the crops are gone.
